With the New England Patriots defeating the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Bill Belichick added another significant career milestone to his resume.

Belichick has officially secured his 300th career win, and oddly enough, he brought his career full circle. His first NFL victory came with the Browns, defeating the Patriots in 1991. Now he wins his 300th game, 28 years later, defeating the Browns as head coach of the Pats. It's almost poetic.

With this, Belichick enters an elite class of NFL coaches, as he now joins Don Shula and George Halas as the only NFL head coaches to have reached 300 wins.

Belichick has his team running like a well-oiled machine, and he's only 67 years old, so there's a chance that he continues coaching long enough for him to beat out Shula and take sole possession of the all-time wins record for a coach.

Besides, he may want to prove that he can still win without Tom Brady, which means he could be in New England for a long time.

Regardless, this is an incredible feat that Belichick has accomplished. No matter how you feel about New England's head coach, you have to respect the overwhelming amount of success he's enjoyed.
